It all started with an idea. Co-Founder, Dan Schneider was delivering Carbon Dioxide as a youthful, handsome, brilliant man, just making a living (needless to say, Dan helped us write this part). It became clear to Dan, that the method being used to fill the large cryo-vac bulk Carbon Dioxide tanks was wildly inefficient and WASTEFUL to the customer. Dan went to his super-professional engineering laboratory (his garage) and developed what would end up being the next best thing in bulk gas delivery and storage. The innovative Diverter Valve technology allowed Carbon Dioxide to be delivered to a customer faster, safer and with absolutely NO venting. It also eliminated the natural evaporation waste vented off by the large cryo-vac tanks when not in use. Tests showed this technology would save cryo-vac bulk customers 20% or more on their monthly CO2 bill. Game changed, better mousetrap set.
Dan brought this technology to legendary Wyoming businessman extraordinaire and former stand-out Wyoming University Running Back, Mike Schutte (Mike may have also helped with this part) who immediately saw the potential in Dan’s new idea. Mike brought his rock star sales professional son, Brett Schutte into the fold and just like that Green CO2 Systems was born. Dan provided the technology, Mike, the business knowhow, while Brett brought the technology to market and built our second family, customer by customer, brick by brick.
That’s just the beginning… We would not be where we are today without each and every team partner. From our delivery team providing exceptional customer experiences time and time again, to our forward-thinking R&D team staying ahead of the technological curve, keeping our customers safe and operational, Green CO2 Systems has grown as quickly as we have because we wake up every day challenging ourselves to find a better way to help make our customers’ businesses safer and more profitable.”
And we’re not afraid to say it. The keystone principle Green CO2 Systems has built its foundation on, is treating our customers as we would want to be treated by our own business partners, like family. Since our inception in 2010, founders Dan Schneider, Mike Schutte and Brett Schutte agreed that Green CO2 Systems would always conduct business in the most fair and ethical manner, always doing what is best for the customer despite not always being what is in the best interest of the company. It’s family first and our customers are a part of our family.
Founded in Fort Collins, CO, Green CO2 Systems is an employee owned and operated company. We believe the best way to engage our team partners and help them take ownership of the Green CO2 Systems’ customer experience, is to give them ownership in the company. Our team treats the business like it’s their own and that’s because it is.
